DAWN amber carving by fairyfrog DAWN amber carving by fairyfrog
Amber carving, inspired by the comic "DAWN".

Ring project cabochon intaglio, one of the smallest pieces yet.
The steel bar it's resting at is 2.3mm thick -for size reference.
I never thought I would find my 0.3mm burrs too large and clumsy.. O.o

Took me about 1 hour. I'll revisit those chains and tribal-looking thorns! :heart:

It seems to me that you learn whatever and then master it in a timespan that is just incredible

Any chance some of these are ever gonna show up in your Etsy store..?
I mean, Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I need to get cracking...

I'd love to make you something custom!
-Or is there any of my amber work that you like? Some of them are still available.
This one is made-to-order for someone very dear to me and unavailable, the phoenix has sold and the "captain's cameo" is my own.
Pretty much all the rest are still in my treasure box...

Drop me a line! ;)

I actually checked your Etsy page [before I left the note above and, again, after I read your response], but could find nothing there. If I'm missing something, let me know. I do like the flower stuff and know my wife would go for it as well, though this is just Valentine's [which, as you know follows Xmas quite closely], so I don't want to get involved with something exceedingly expensive. Considering how much money we just spent on the remodel we did [which is actually only about 75% done], I could maybe get myself in serious hot water if I spent too much anyway.

So.. within those parameters, if you have anything you can bear to part with, let me know.

Saw it.
It is, yes, quite nice.
I might could be interested. [possible to do it in a heart shape..?]
Valentine's Day is not quite 3 weeks away.
This doable..?

Would you like me to set it in some hearty silver frame for the wifey?..? ;)

ah, right!
I haven't set any of the intaglios up for sale, mostly because I have not finished them to be pendants yet.
For instance, my "two lovers" piece is finished and got a little bail, although I'd prefer to make a "better" piece and perhaps set in a sterling silver frame.

The "Two Lovers" pendant is a bit dark when lit from above. On the larger side, and it's -assembled- amber, not natural, good stuff. Assembled meaning they melted down pieces and siphoned it clear, mixed it with a hint of bonding resin and pressed it.
If you are interested in it anyway, I could send you some more pictures of it, and an estimate...

..If you'd rather have something like this :thumb333965461: in frame (but with a better and more detailed intaglio), this one sold for 150$ with a sterling silver chain.
